We finished the first few shelves and we got to the food storage area where we finished framing a whole highway of shelves.

The shelf-a-thon continues as I started out today by helping Robbie reconstruct the pass way shelf into a different height, while Fred went to pick up another load of lumber. Then we continued applying supports and cutting shelf flooring to measured sizes, including cutting grooves into needed areas.

End of the work week and we finished another shelf, well the framing. We’re waiting for the store to restock the wood we need. Meanwhile,we did some organizing on the new shelves with Jocelyn and helped Paul level out the saw counter, by shaving off some very thin layers, so that we can install the new saw.

I finally got a shot of a turkey over by the willow feeder. I started working on a wooden spoon.

Today we got started on some rolling shelves. A lot of cuts made and screwing together in place to make the blueprint manifest into a hefty shelf.

Work in progress. Meanwhile, enjoy some random pictures of things in the library.

We got some more wood in to finish the rolling shelves and some other pending projects and we got started on some new book shelves.  I also included a picture of my new favorite piece of glass.

We did some more homesteading in the winter type of stuff today like shoveling some snow and remolding the library for the benefit of the residents here now, and in the future.

Today was a pretty adventurous day. I posted a pic of a very stubborn nail that wouldn't come off and broke Robbies hammer then flung Him pretty far. There was also some styrofoam looking snow and I cooked some decent pasta.
